A Trail for All - Riding the Otago Central Rail Trail

Australian Mountain Bike Magazine unwind on the Rail Trail

Otago Central Rail Trail

Along the way Mike realises that this ride is all about the scenery, people, coffee and beer. Aptly nicknamed the ‘Ale Trail’ – a refreshment stop is never far from hand. This is the trail to give the less experienced a chance to taste the freedom that comes from riding your bike without the fear of rough trails, big climbs and having to share the experience with cars.

Oh, and there’s amazing scenery, friendly people, no dangerous animals (except maybe the odd stray sheep), easy access across the ditch from Australia and the Kiwis speak a passable version of English!...
